BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA-The IPC Summit on American Competitiveness will be held June 15-16, 2011, in Washington, D.C. at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill. This unique IPC event combines conference presentations with legislative and regulatory briefings as well as key lobbying visits with members of Congress to discuss critical issues that directly impact the U.S. electronics industry's ability to compete globally. As a part of the two-day Summit, exclusive events with members of the National Association of Manufacturers will offer opportunities to hear from and network with members of Congress and senior-level Administration officials.

"We've structured the Summit to give participants not only the knowledge, insights and tactics to increase their companies' competitiveness, but also the chance to meet face-to-face with members of Congress on the issues important to our industry and garner their support," says IPC President and CEO Denny McGuirk. "This event presents an invaluable opportunity for our industry to step up to the plate and take the necessary actions to help strengthen the U.S. electronics industry."

The IPC Summit will offer information on specific measures companies can take to increase their competitiveness. During "Taking Action: How U.S. Electronics Manufacturers are Ensuring their Competitiveness," a panel of senior-level executives representing companies in the electronics industry will share the critical steps they have taken to gain an advantage in the current global marketplace. In addition, information on resources such as the Federal Trade Adjustment Assistance Program will be discussed and the international factors impacting the industry's competitiveness will be highlighted.

IPC's legislative and regulatory briefings by subject-matter experts will help prepare participants for their Congressional appointments. These briefings will address the significant issues that Congress must address to enhance the U.S. electronics industry's ability to compete.

Day two of the IPC Summit will be devoted to meetings between participants and their legislators to establish valuable relationships and discuss timely legislative issues and actions, specifically:
  • How Congress' modifications of the tax code impact U.S. electronics companies' level of competitiveness
  • How Congressional actions, and inactions, affect the future ability of the North American electronics industry to meet future military and aerospace needs
  • The consequences of over-regulation inflicted on electronics companies throughout the supply chain

    "By attending this premier conference, companies can help ensure that Congress will look out for the interests of attendees' businesses and the entire U.S. electronics industry," says DDi Corp. President and CEO Mikel Williams, and chairman of the IPC Government Relations Committee.
